nkd pizza are interested in highly driven entrepreneur’s who are looking to grow a quick service pizza business.
Our story began in 2006, in our funky hometown of New Orleans within a cinder block building, lovingly referred to as ‘the lab’. Hailing from a vibrant city of musical culture, Mardi Gras colourful carnivals and Cajun influences, our founders developed a fire in their bellies to create a vivid range of pizzas. Inspired by ancestral dough recipes and the power of simple, fresh and local ingredients to ignite your taste buds, our first NKD Pizza was born.
GSP Group acquired the business in 2015 and set about rebranding from Naked Pizza to NKD Pizza to expand out of the US and into global markets. They wanted to develop and grow the brand by partnering with the right franchisees.
We want nothing to come between you and your fantastic pizza experience. So we adopted ‘the carry-out and delivery store model. This is an efficient model, using swift operations focussing on the quality of your experience guaranteeing your order arrives in a flash, ready to munch on at a fair price. Our standard pricing and ethos of transparency have resulted in customer loyalty, building a reliable foundation for growth and expansion.
We have an international pipeline of over 600 stores which will be opening over the next 5 years across, Germany, UAE, Bulgaria, Kuwait, Ireland, Qatar, USA.
With this pipeline of stores, we are developing and strengthening our growth infrastructure with a robust supply chain, marketing and brand development to give strong brand recognition.
This gives our franchisees a recognisable brand to launch in their chosen territory with the confidence of having a strong partner.
We are looking to build on this current momentum by partnering with dynamic franchisees to open the NKD Pizza brand in additional territories, from Master franchisees and area developers to single store operators.
This is the perfect brand to add to your growing franchise portfolio or start your entrepreneurial journey. There is high demand for territories in the UK, make sure you grab a slice before your preferred territory is locked in by someone else.
When customers come into our stores, we want them to feel welcome and excited to try our food. It is all about having a great experience and we want the interior to reflect this feeling.
By using custom illustrations as murals and adding our logo and slogan to smaller areas, we are able to create a cohesive and professional brand image.
We understand that every one of our franchised stores is different in shape and size. We have done the work with, designers, architects and consultants to make sure when you open your NKD Pizza location it is optimised for delivery and efficiency.
For locations which have sufficient space, we love to build an area for our customers with a bar counter with a small dining area so customers can enjoy a slice of NKD.
We work with leading kitchen suppliers and have negotiated excellent commercial terms on critical pieces of equipment. We continue to work closely with these suppliers to ensure our franchisees are getting the best equipment while minimising the cost of opening one of our stores.
We want your store to be as successful as it can be, that is why we have developed robust marketing tools and strategies to help each franchisee from launching their store to quarterly large scale campaigns. The below items are some of the resources that each of our franchisees has access to, these remove the guesswork for you.
We have developed a concise twenty-day training plan. This plan gives comprehensive training on all aspects of managing and running a successful NKD Pizza location. Below is an outline of the training plan. All training will be carried out by our training team in your store this means we can train your full team in the location they are going to be working in.
We have developed a suite of online training videos to ensure we are delivering the NKD training to our franchisees during the Covid 19 crisis. This suite of videos will remain available to provide training to new team members to ensure constant team development.
We offer professional support throughout the process:
